Drab to Fab: The Look For Less - Pottery Barn Benchwright Table

Today, this drab to fab edition features one of my favorite rooms of the house. Our dining room. We opted for a rustic feel for the room with a few updated touches.  We loved the look of a farmhouse table and debated for weeks on a few different options.  We fell hard for a Pottery Barn table that was above our projected budget. We came close to ordering a custom built table, but the surprise factor along with the time factor made it not the best choice....

We decided to go with the Pottery Barn table and opted to go for a table with extendable pieces so that we would be able to use it in future homes. I have never once regretted that decision in the year that we have owned our table. I truly love it. Granted, I recognize that sometimes rather than splurge for the original piece, you may rather choose a similar table... and today you can.

Imagine my surprise, when I opened the Pier 1 Catalogue today and found a fantastic look for less option!  I love our dining room table and if you've been looking for an inspired look, well, I just had to share this find with you. The Pier 1 Eastwood Dining Table is a stunning imitation of our  Pottery Barn Benchwright Dining Table at less than half the cost.

Can you believe it? It is a total steal.  In addition to this, I have also thrown in similar versions of other pieces to give you an entire room for less.

The Look...for Less

Dining Table: Pier 1 Eastwood Dining Table
Chairs: Tufted Fabric Dining Chair or Claudine Dining Chair
Rug: Threshold Fretwork Rug
Rustic Buffet: Garner Sideboard Buffet or Verona Buffet

There you have it! As always, feel free to email me with any questions you may have. Have a wonderful day.
